Remarkable story in today’s Daily Telegraph. A couple from Rotherham who fostered children have had the kids taken away from them by social workers – because they were members of UKIP. The adults, not the kids. Having been previously considered ‘exemplary’ carers, the couple – who do not wish to be named – were allegedly confronted by a social worker who told them that the council had received “tip-off” that the pair were UKIP supporters. This made them unsuitable as carers because UKIP had “racist” policies, according to the imbecilic social worker. And the kids were re-allocated. Aside from those Owen Jones trolls who arrived here yesterday like demented sheep, can anyone suggest a justification for this?
